I received some uncomfortable news Thursday afternoon about my dad. A test he had that day confirmed that the arteries to his heart are severely blocked up and he will be going for a triple/quadruple bypass surgery in less than four weeks. While I'm scared about the surgery for him, I'm thankful that this was caught in time. The doctor said that he could be struck with a heart attack at any moment if his arteries deteriorated any more than they already have. I'm confident that the surgery will be a success and we will make it throught his tough time.I thought that when I tried to tell Leah and Jared the news that I would get choked up and emotional and wouldn't be able to fully express what was happening. But the thought of chaos and confusion over the phone scared me into sobriety and I managed to say what needed to be said at the time.This is real.
